Liam and Laura are newlyweds who are finally going on their honeymoon after the sudden death of Laura's mother. They are the only people on a secluded Scottish island...or are they? Mysterious things are happening on the island including fleeting visions of someone watching them. After an etching of the word DEVIL on the window, the couple comes to understand that they are being stalked. They do everything they can to stay alive. They start to wonder if the stalker is someone from Laura's life or someone Liam, a detective, had arrested.
The title of the book automatically caught my eye and the premise was intriguing as stalker thrillers are usually the best. This was a decently told story but it was a bit too long. I felt the storytelling of the time on the island could have been condensed some. I guessed the plot twist right before the author revealed it, but it was not something that I thought initially, which was a nice change. All in all, this was a book I enjoyed reading.
